I've been recently trying IBS meds but no difference. Imodium only works for a day or two. I'm sick of soiling myself. Any advice?
I take amitriptyline 50mg but what really helped was when I started taking Calcium with Vitamin D3. I was amazed at the difference. Constant diarrhea leeches the calcium out of the bones and I was developing Osteoporosis so was told to take calcium 500mg with vitamin D3 twice a day. For the first time in my life I am not constantly having to worry where the nearest bathroom is. In fact if I do not get enough fiber in my diet and do not drink enough water I can get constipated and that is a real first for me.
Take care of you

I am on Bentyl (20mg 4x's/day) and sometimes Imodium isn't enough, would anaspaz be considered then?
